Self proclaimed as a ‘clown in a dress’, Bianca Del Rio (Roy Haylock) emerged on the New Orleans’ gay entertainment scene in 1998 and nearly immediately became a premiere nightlife entertainer. As an experienced costume designer, comic and theatrical performer, Roy seamlessly merged his multifaceted talents to create the beloved Drag Queen persona, Bianca Del Rio.
The combination of her talents remains largely unchallenged; Bianca has been awarded some of the highest honors in her field. Appearing on major television networks including MTV, A&E and the Travel Channel she quickly was invited to perform at many national nightlife circuit and party events, and has become synonymous with gay Mardi Gras Events.
As an experienced entertainer Bianca soon transplanted herself to NYC. Having worked in the city before, she immediately found acceptance and success at some of the most renowned gay and straight venues in the country. Bianca performs weekly at various NYC bars, clubs and eateries while continuing to travel nationally for special events. Bianca Del Rio’s impeccably quick-witted comedy, effortless fashions and unique ability to make audiences cry from laughter while she tatters their self-image to shreds, keeps everyone beckoning for more. Bianca is a Season 6 contestant of Rupaul’s Drag Race premiering in February 2014.
